Bipolar Landau Energy Levels Interact With Strongly Selective Carriers In Single-layer WSe2

- Dec 12, 2018 -

Recently, in Nat. Mater., Cory r. Dean of Columbia University (corresponding author) and his team published a paper entitled Ambipolar Landau levels and strong band-selective carrier interactions in monolayer WSe2. They used single-electron transistors to perform Landau level spectroscopy in WSe2. The electron structure diagram of single layer transition metal disulfide compound and hole are provided. They also found that landau energy levels differ significantly between the two bands and follow a unique sequence of valence bands governed by the strong zeeman effect. Seman's splitting in the valence band was several times more energetic than the cyclotron, far exceeding the predictions of the single-particle model, suggesting unusually strong multibody interactions and suggesting that WSe2 could be a candidate for new related electronics.
